Description Amir Adar 2015-01-06 17:42:26 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a file (new or existing)
2. Go to File > Properties...
3. Uncheck "Apply user data" and click "OK"
4. Save the file
5. Go to File > Properties...

Current behavior:
The fields "Total editing time" and "Revision number" go blank

Expected behavior:
The two fields should have the same value as when "Apply user data" is checked.

Linux Mint 17.1, 32-bit.

AFAIK, if we don't apply user data in this context then there's no metadata available to calculate the Total editing time and the revision # of the document.

Would a different label be clearer? maybe "Save metadata concerning editing?"

But I'll toss this over to the UX Cabal for clarity.

I see. So it's a matter of definition?

What is considered as "user data", then?

Good question. I'd imagine that user data would encompass all the metadata that isn't directly inferred from the contents of the document(s) being edited. But that's just a guess.
Comment 4 Amir Adar 2015-01-29 10:29:35 UTC
So would those properties directly inferred from the contents of the document be the properties that also appear when you right-click on the file and select "Properties" in the file-browser?

"[ ] Apply user data" comes along with the execution via button labelled "Reset Properties". So what the user expects is likely that he/she resets metadata either with or without applying own data. But nothing should happen when the dialog is closed. 

So I suggest to not change the metadata unless reset properties is pressed.

Shorter STR:
1. Open a file (new or existing)
2. File > Properties...
3. Uncheck "Apply user data" and click "OK"
4. File > Properties...

Reproduced:  "Total editing time" and "Revision number" are blank.

5. Check "Apply user data" and click "OK"
6. File > Properties...

They are back again.

Additional information.
1.  Did not matter if file was saved, reloaded, etc., just whether "Apply user data" was checked.

2.  Other Properties (Last printed, Modified, Size are not affected) by unchecking "Apply user data"
